The United States Mint next week will release the first proof American Platinum Eagle from the new three-year design series, Preamble to the Declaration of Independence. Coins in 2018, 2019 and 2020 will portray Life, Liberty and Happiness.
A five-year design series will follow, the U.S. Mint revealed Jan. 17 at a Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee (CCAC) meeting.
Proof American Platinum Eagles issued in years 2021 to 2025 will celebrate the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. These platinum coins will depict:
- Freedom of Religion,
- Freedom of Speech,
- Freedom of the Press,
- Freedom to Peaceably Assemble, and
- Freedom to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances.
Similar to the current three-year series, the U.S. Mint’s goal will be to have a single artist create all five designs.
